Should I convert to a bi-weekly payment schedule?

It may surprise you that most banks and mortgage companies collect two to three dollars for every dollar that you borrow! However, there is a way to accelerate mortgage payoff using a method called Bi-Weekly Mortgage Payments. This program is implemented by dividing your monthly mortgage payment in half and paying it every other week -- resulting in a net effect of paying an extra payment toward principal each year.
